As appearing on the ballot in New Jersey, your 2008 candidates for the presidency of the United States:
John Mc Cain [sic] & Sarah Palin (Republican)
Barack Obama & Joe Biden* (Democrat)
Bob Barr & Wayne A. Root (Libertarian Party)
Ralph Nader & Matt Gonzalez (Independent)

Jeffrey "Jeff" Boss** & Andrea Marie Psoras (Vote Here)
Chuck Baldwin & Darrell Castle (Constitution Party)

Brian Moore & Stewart Alexander (Socialist Party USA)
Cynthia Mc Kinney [sic] & Rosa Clemente (Green Party)
*also running as an incumbent U.S. senator in Delaware
**also running for a U.S. senate seat in New Jersey
I'm a bit perplexed on why there are three different socialism candidates (and no candidate from the Workers World Party). Maybe they're just pushing collective ownership of the election process? One day, everyone will be on the ballot for president.
It's been a long election, getting started sometime in June of 1988, and originally having 2,576 candidates from both parties. It was essentially narrowed down to Obama and McCain. There were things to like about both candidates. Obama has a nice jump shot, while McCain's mobility and charisma is remisicent of a grumpier Bob Dole.
I don't really need to go on too much about the election. If you want to read about some relevant political debate, type "Obama is an Arab" into your favorite search engine. In the meantime, I want to leave you with this great quote. Everyone has heard about the Canadian Masked Avengers pranking Sarah Palin. My favorite part:
"Yes, yes, I understand we have the equivalent of Joe the Plumber in France. It's called Marcel, the guy with bread under his armpit."
EDIT: Oh yeah, don't forget to vote on your local propositions/referendums/public questions! Vote against anything bigoted or monumentally stupid.
